I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

Given their track record, and whether you like it or no, hasn't Bungie earned the right to be somewhat arrogant? I mean, they do tend to deliver the goods, were i in their shoes, I can't say I wouldn't be overly cocky either.

Given that they actually did revolutionize how FPSes were made and played, I'm inclined to agree with this.

The reason for regenerating health has nothing to do with what the players want. It's to make game design easier. You don't need to worry about how different scenarios would play out if the player has various levels of health while entering a room if you can assume he regenerated to full on the way into the room.

It's also really immersion-breaking at times. I can accept a guy in power armor being able to recharge shields, but a large number of supposedly realistic games seem to think the average adult human can heal a bullet wound in 45 seconds.

Is it really that more bizarre than the average adult being able to heal any injury by walking over a kit with magical medical supplies in it?

Nope!

Just assume your healthbar is your plot armor, or luck. Those 'hits' are almost hits. If you run out of luck, bam, a real shot gets ya. HP is always abstract.

Bumping this back up as I've preordered this for PS4 and was curious if anyone else had already decided to pick it up (whenever it actually launches). I figure if there's enough interest on one particular console we could try and do an Allspark Fireteam/Clan/Whatever you want to call it.

The article paints it as $500 million for one game, but the actual language used keeps referring to the franchise.

 

"The spokesperson added that investment in the next generation engine and a "robust backend infrastructure are upfront expenditures that should reduce future product development costs."

 

So its up front but some of it is towards the whole franchise, not just the first game. That said it is still a LOT of money, you're right.

Okay so I've max leveled one character in the Alpha, put probably 5 hours into it so far. I can tell its an Alpha there are some issues that as far as I'm aware are being resolved, or have been resolved. Beyond that, what I immediately notice is it has the kind of tight, excellent gunplay I'd expect from a Bungie title and positively drips atmosphere.

 

Past that the next thing I notice, is that despite all the talk of it being a "shared world shooter" it is, for all intents, an MMO. Or at least a variation of one. I honestly, and this may just be me, but I honestly got gigantic City of Heroes vibes while I was playing. Maybe its just because I'm enjoying it so much, and I am enjoying it. If this is the Alpha, I can't wait to try the Beta next month, and they've guaranteed I'm keeping my pre-order.

 

Depending on how well they make everything work, they really could have something extremely special here.
